We received this information this week from Sen. Sherrod Brown’s office:
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created to help small businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 crisis. To help small business borrowers determine if the PPP is a good option for them, the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland is hosting a webinar that will provide guidance on accessing the program, the application process, and other details about the loan terms. Representatives from the Small Business Administration, a regional economic development organization, and community development financial institution will walk attendees through the PPP.
